New York Giants: Top 5 draft trade partners
By Henry Buggy
The Miami Dolphins may be looking to add a quarterback in the upcoming draft. Ryan Tannehill missed the entire 2017 season with a torn ACL, and head coach Adam Gase is known for being a quarterback guru.
Tannehill posted a career-best passer rating (93.5) in his first season under Gase, helping Miami reach the postseason for the first time since 2008. The Dolphins may end up deciding Tannehill is still the future of the franchise.
He will only be 30-years-old by the start of this upcoming season. He also didn’t miss a start in his first four seasons. But if general manager Chris Grier, executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum, and Gase are sold on a quarterback, they may not want to miss their chance.
They could also surpass their AFC East rival, the New York Jets, by trading with the Giants. The Dolphins may not have their top choice of quarterback due to Cleveland, but Miami’s front office would likely have two quarterbacks in mind if they planned to pull off this trade.
The Giants could ask for a king’s ransom from the Dolphins, which could help the team both this upcoming season and in the future. The Giants could trade the No. 2 overall pick to Miami for the Dolphins first-round pick (No. 11), their third-round selection (No. 73), and their second fourth-round pick (No. 131) in this year’s draft. The trade, of course, would hinge on getting Miami’s 2019 first-round pick as well.
The Giants would still be able to add an instant impact player at No. 11 overall and could get two potential starters with the third- and fourth-round selections. They would also have two first-round picks in 2019, giving them time and ammunition to decide what to do at the quarterback position.
